In Bangalore, it is important to check the land acquisition details. One cannot contact BBMP, BDA or BMRDA. So, if you are buying in a BDA Layout, check if the site you are considering comes within the BDA plan and is a valid site at their site office. In case of other layouts, it is at the owner’s risk and one should thoroughly check before acquiring. Remember that BBMP cannot sanction layout plans.
Also, with number of unauthorised layouts and fraudulent property transactions, the Karnataka Government has come up with measures that bring relief to those looking to buy plots for investment.
The state government has come up with tech solutions to end fraudulent land deals. Now, the middle-men trying to commit fraud will have to go through the sub-registrar’s office. Karnataka Valuation and e-Registration (Kaveri) software of Karnataka Stamps and Registration department has been integrated with ‘E-Swathu’ property software of Urban Local Bodies (ULB) attached to the Panchayat Raj and Rural Development department. This will provide information to sub-registrars about properties listed in ULBs. As a result, they will be able to verify the property details before initiating the registration process.
